Amplitube 4 Explained® is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14 .
Rated 3.0 out of 5 by from Nice Introduction First of all I am grateful that there is a tutorial out there to introduce a layman/novice to Amplitube. I am pretty new to the idea of electric guitar music in general so this tutorial was pretty helpful. But I wish it was a bit more in depth. All in all value for money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from The course is very helpful in that it made me aware of some new features I thought the course was helpful but maybe a little overpriced due to its limited detail. It is easy to follow, good narration and video, I just would like something that goes more deeply into the settings and what their impact is on the sound you here. This covers it some but I would like a little more indepth explanation...maybe there is another course that does this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from No Nonsense Explanation of the Product's Features This was a good mini-course that explains many possibilities available in Amplitube 4. It is a feature by feature, control by control exploration of the product. If you are new to Amplitube 4 and have spent any time messing around in the interface and experienced any degree of frustration, this little course will get you lined out quickly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Amplitube 4 explained Great tool to guide you through AT 4 way and beyond the the user guide.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Very well presented It appears some products are shipped assuming the user would have been born suckling on a Teac. I bought one such product, Amplitube 4...and it is a great product, but I had no experience with recording digital or stone tablet. I was entering a new world completely blind. I had in fact given up on the A4 program...when I found Groove3. This instructional series is well thought out and presented. There are 16 episodes...almost all have a moment of clarity, I didn't use the installation segment. The Groove 3 videos showed me how in depth A4 in fact is...so, to make my life even easier I wanted to see about getting the videos loaded on my iPad. One email to Groove 3 support (Thanks again, Tony) taught me what to do.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by from poor video begining This has somewhat good info, except He could have mentioned the drivers that needed to be downloaded to even hear the amps play. I accidentally found out on my own after some frustration. An important part that was left out.
